Reserve requirements are the percentage of deposits that depository institutions must hold in reserve and not lend out. Banks and other depository institutions (savings institutions, credit unions, and foreign banking entities) are required to hold a portion of their deposits as reserves. Depository institutions may hold reserves either as vault cash or as deposits with Federal Reserve Banks.
